Ignition tumbler

Yes, my key will not turn. I've got it in position one right now. I know with a Mercedes, yes I know, you can replace just what we Mercedes technicians called the "ignition tumbler". You would not have to do the whole lock, as long as it was not in the locked position. Anyway, what is needed to fix an ignition that will not turn out of the lock position?

Thanks

Eric

I figured you knew what a tumbler was:p I'm not sure what is required to fix it. every once and awhile my key will get stuck(along with the steering wheel. it takes a little bit of working the tumbler a reefing on the steering wheel to get it to turn. Could it be that we are plaguued not by the tumbler but by some sort of steering lock?? I don't know good luck. I have an extra ignition switch setup if your interested I'll dig it out and see if its any good

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
